With Christmas just a week away Gill Buchanan, centre manager at Swan Walk and chairman of Horsham Unlimited Business Partnerships, explains why Horsham is the best place to visit to get those last minutes festive gifts:
With the Christmas markets in Carfax running daily until Christmas Eve offering that something different and complimenting the extended range of stores at Swan Walk, Christmas shopping has never been easier or more enjoyable in Horsham and the town is seeing increased customer numbers and receiving great feedback from shoppers.
The new Smartpark ticketless car parking system which also accepts card payments makes it even more convenient than ever for Horsham shoppers too.
Swan Walk’s extensive choice of high street brands as well as some local niche treasures offers Horsham shoppers everything they need for festive fashion, food and gifts all under one roof. The centre was delighted to welcome Pandora, who opened last month in their stunning new store; alongside some great seasonal pop-up activity including Chichester-based Montezuma’s and the ever popular Calendar Club.
2014 also sees the return of Shooting Star Chase’s pop-up gift wrapping service located opposite EE and open every day 10am-4pm until 24th December. This takes all the fuss out of wrapping whilst supporting Shooting Star Chase. They are also able to offer birthday present wrapping and will wrap any size or shape for a donation to the charity.
While presents are being wrapped customers can relax in one of Swan Walk’s many cafés offering everything from locally sourced freshly prepared lunches to sweet festive treats. Younger customers can be kept occupied and enchanted by the centre’s singing snowman – new for 2014.
The centre is also open until 8pm every Thursday until Christmas with free parking from 4pm, helping shoppers to avoid the Christmas rush. Free parking is also available every Sunday when Swan Walk is open from 10.30am to 4.30pm.
Horsham offers everything shoppers need this season for fuss free festive shopping and family entertainment right on their doorstep.
